The Best Features of Acer Aspire S24
The Acer Aspire S24 is a strikingly thin all in one desktop that is 16.1 inch high with a 0.24-inches thin frame and a 23.8” borderless Full HD IPS display. Its black and champagne gold color scheme adds a touch of luxury to the work space with its good looks competing with that of the $1299 iMac.
The Acer Aspire S24 is a powerful device running on the new 8th gen Intel Core i5 processor. The Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology is highly responsive so you spend more time doing things and less time waiting. It packs 12GB of dual-channel DDR4 SDRAM, configurable up to 32GB. In the storage department, the desktop only comes with a 1TB SATA hard drive, which is rather slow. However, there are options to add an SSD.
Movies and games on the S24 are more realistic and dramatic with its 1920×1080 resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Even the tiniest details and text are displayed with precision clarity. Thanks to its super narrow bezel, you can enjoy maximum viewing space of your windows, media and files. Granted, there is no 4K or touch display but it offers the right balance of work and entertainment.
There are two front-facing 2.1 channel speakers with subwoofer that delivers life-like audio entertainment. Support for Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby Audio Premium ensures deep bass and maximum clarity and volume.
Lets you charge Qi enabled devices
If you have a Qi-enabled mobile device, charging it should be easier than ever. Thanks to its built in charging station, all you have to do is place it on top of the charging area and relax. You avoid the hassle of dealing with plug points and messy cables. If your smartphone doesn’t support Qi wireless charging, no worries. Just get yourself an adapter on Amazon (should cost you around $10) and connect it to the Micro USB port. Job done!
One of the coolest features of the Aspire S24 is the ergonomic screen. You can tilt the screen from -5° to 25° with the least bit of effort. With just one hand, you can move the screen to get the viewing angle that’s right for you. You can set the screen at one angle when you are watching movies, or move it to another one when you are browsing. An IPS panel lets you view your monitor clearly at angles of up to 178° while ensuring high-quality color reproduction.
Has Screen Focused Features
The Aspire S24 has screen focused features to deliver the best visual experience. The Acer VisionCare technology helps to reduce eye strain and deliver a comfortable viewing experience. The Acer Bluelight Shield reduces exposure of the distracting blue light at night. The Flickerless technology helps to reduce screen flicker.
If you don’t have a Microsoft account, you’ll be pleased to take advantage of the free 30-day trial of Microsoft Office that comes with the purchase.
